Local church starts Choose Life initiative
Special to the Enquirer
Hartselle’s Daystar Church is launching a new initiative called The Choose Life Fund with a goal of helping families who have chosen life but need a helping hand.
“This fund is for families who want to adopt or be foster parents, moms who want to choose life but don’t think they can do it alone, or for single moms who did choose life and just need some help,” Pastor Jerry Lawson said. “Basically, if you’re choosing life, we want to stand with you.”
Support from the church community was immediate, according to church leadership. The Choose Life Fund was announced in July and was flooded with donations of more than $35,000 within the first few days of opening.
“If you are choosing life and need someone to come alongside you, know that you do not have to do this alone,” Outreach pastor Chris Hopper said. “We are here to help.”
“Daystar Church exists to further its mission of Community transformation through the love and power of Jesus Christ”, Pastor Jerry stated. “The Choose Life Fund is already doing just that.”
